Alright, so I went ahead and got some dry ice from the store and put it in a bowl with water in my tank. I got 4lbs and threw it in there. That should be enough. I had fun with the leftovers if you know what I mean...

So far its working great. Tip: don't stick your head into the tank to inspect the plants, when you inhale, your nose will HURT! CO2 is painful when inhaled, lol.

Also, if you take a big enough breath in, you can't catch your breath and you get light headed. I stuck my head in the tank inspecting the plants and seeing if the bugs died and man... I almost passed out. Be careful, not to be messed with.
